The beer pours great with a nice hazy golden straw color to it, a great think white head and great lacing on the glass. The smell comes off very hoppy with a great piney, grapefruit smell to it and almost a hint of white grape. The taste is great with a nice balanced hoppy flavor, it comes off hoppy but mellows out quickly without burning out your taste buds. The mouthfeel is decent with a bitter leftover flavor but definitely doesnt burn you out and the beer was well carbonated. Overall, this is a great beer and an impressive from a brewer I have never experienced before...Highly Recommended.

Best by 15MAY14 Pours a golden ale with a fine, broken sheet of whites. Smells good and dank, some grapefruit, some BO, some resin; a little sweet malt in the background. Flavor is nice and balanced with a vitamin character. Sweet tangerines, some lemon rind, some papayas and a good crackery malt. Medium bodied with light on moderate carb. Good stuff.

Poured up on tap at the brewpub where there’s a clear copper body that supports a nice looking off white head. The aroma offers up a mix of grapefruit, a dash of pine hops and faint sweet maltiness. The taste begins with firm up front pine hop bitterness that’s blended with bitter tangelo and grapefruit like citrus hops. It builds into mild malt and malt sweetness to midway that helps enhance a modest citrus hop flavor note. This is a nice bitter hop forward brew where there’s still some balance to go along with the firm, late ’90’s feel to the hop profile.

Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber color with a huge billowy head of just off white foam. The head holds on with quite some persistence, slowly fading to leave a nice level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of strong of a citrus grapefruit smell along with it having a little bit of an orange and tangerine smell as well. These aromas are by far the most potent, but are joined by some lighter smells of a floral and grassy nature as well. Taste – The taste begins with a drier citrus and lightly bready flavor mixed with a little bit of a fruit taste of tangerine, orange, and pineapple. As the taste advances, the sweetness fades a bit, all while the bitterness gets even greater with more grapefruit and some floral and light earthy flavors coming to the tongue. Right at the end, a little bit of a grassy flavor comes to the tongue as well, leaving a rather bitter, but still smooth flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the style the mouthfeel is very nice, as it balances well the fruit and bitter hop flavors. Overall – A rather tasty and crisper IPA with a good level of fruity citrus hop flavor as well as just enough other bitter hops to keep a big IPA flavor all throughout the taste.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden, small head. Extrovert lychee aroma. Mid sweet with well rounded mouthfeel and medium body. Rather intnse hoppiness - pineapple and lychee dominates. Severe late bitterness, but still hop aromas are what drives this beer.

Can. Pours a clear gold with an amber hue with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges and laces nicely. Aroma has a nice note of citrus and grapefruit with a bit of backing pine and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has more of a pine/grapefruit hop profile with a bit of citrus in the finish and not much of a malt profile.

A beautiful beer, has great lacing and a really pleasant aroma of hops. The actual taste of the beer is pretty good but its just a little to bitter for me to drink these often.

(12oz can thanks to SaucerSam) cloudy medium gold, oily tan head with excellent lacing. Nose is super fresh citrus, grapefruit, funky, herbal, very light onion that’s not offensive. Taste of fresh citrus, light and balanced grapefruit, smells so much fresher than it tastes, bit of biscuit and yeasty. Light body, easy to drink, oily body, no bitter linger
